How We Help Event Organizers
Let Visit Hendricks County serve as your first contact for planning an event in one of our communities. Your event must take place in Hendricks County, must be open to the public and must actively promote to and attract out-of-town visitors.
If it does, we can help with just about everything including venues, planning and promotions. Best of all, our services are complimentary.
If you have any questions or need assistance with anything, we are here to help. Contact Us
